2008 Trip to Kara's

We made our annual trip to Battle Ground, Washington to visit Our daughter, her husband and our 4 youngest grand children. We were treated like royalty and had a great time.
It's usually cold out there this time of year so we were pleasantly surprised to find it near 90 degrees on our arrival.

The kids had begged their Mamaw to bring her bathing suit to swim with them so they went to the pool soon after our arrival. The next day turned cooler so this was the last use of the pool.

It seems everything grows better out there. Better soil and more moisture I assume.
Here are Drake and Peyton to add more beauty to the roses. Bryce is in the background.

Here is Logan, on the left, practicing Taekwondo. He has a green belt.
We attending every practice to watch them kick, wrestle, etc.

This is Drake, on the left, also practicing Taekwondo. He also has a green belt

That is both of them on the right doing a "duck walk" race.

My birthday occurred the second day we were there and my daughter baked her "old" dad a cake. Only one candle was used to prevent any more forest fires. "Smokey's" rule I've heard.

It's almost impossible to get them all together for a group photo. Logan, Peyton, and Drake cooperated but Bryce is way behind on the floor.

Drake had his 6th birthday party a few days early so that we could attend. We had a house full and everyone seemed to have a great time. Our daughter is helping Drake with all his presents.

The pictures are beautiful. Of course, with such great subject matter, how could you fail? The children are more beautiful every year. So glad you had a good time.
